I've
always been
storyteller.

But I never set out to be a photographer. I was (and still am!) going to be a writer. And then as I worked toward that writing goal, someone put a camera in my hand and asked me to try telling stories with something besides words. So with an English nerd's love for character and tone, a romantic's love for poignant beauty, and a realist's love for imperfection, I dove in.

I've
always been a
story-teller.

That was back in 2010.

Since that time, photography has changed much of my life. It's brought me some of my dearest friends. It's reshaped the way my husband Danny and I view serving others. It has even literally taken me around the world. One thing that hasn't changed: my soul-stirring desire to tell stories that feel so real you're sure you knew them before you heard them. Or saw them. It's my privilege to tell those stories for my clients, and for the generations of their families still to come.

Today is National Best Friends Day. And so it seems fitting to share these newborn portraits today, showcasing my more-than-half-a-lifetime best friend and her new baby girl and family. At her own childhood home. It couldn’t have been more fitting. There was so much sweetness. There was so much laughter. I will admit that much of that […]

I couldn’t wait to meet this baby girl. After photographing her parents through their engagement session, wedding, and maternity portraits, I knew we were going to have fun at her first photo session. What I didn’t know was that she would be fascinated by the camera, and completely suspicious of me! Who was this stranger, interrupting her […]

Barely two weeks new, this little man was already a pro at handling his big brothers by the time we took his newborn portraits. He’d already learned to sleep through the sounds of their playing. He’d already learned they were a lot more interested in goofing off — you know, being boys — than in […]

It isn’t too often that a family welcomes baby #6, so that in itself was exciting enough. But when baby #6 is also turns out — surprise! — to be baby boy # 1? The excitement level just takes off. Especially for sisters #1-5. There is so much love to be shared in a family of […]

Oh, friends, this was a fun one. A few years ago, we met them at a wedding we photographed. A little over a year later we photographed their engagement portraits, and a few months after that, their wedding. Then they became our neighbors! Only a matter of weeks ago, we did some early morning maternity portraits. […]

They’re not only twins, they’re identical twins, each just as adorable as the other. For the time being, even their parents are only able to tell them apart thanks to a strategically painted toenail on one of their little men. But while they look just the same, at five weeks old they’re already growing into […]
